Run a memtest check on the server. You are looking for memory errors.
Also check the temperatures and fans. I have 30+ servers out running 100
+ clients each and impress is not a crash-prone application.
That said, be sure to double check that the Java you think you are using
is the one you are _really_ using. Th GNU java is not ready for the
world yet and OpenOffice.org uses Sun Java. The OOo released from OOo
uses Sun Java. The OOo from RedHat (and friends) is compiled using the
GNU java. So the place to look is the alternatives command. OOo for Sun
java will not work reliably using GNU java.
